HPMA Nominees School Us On Reggae & Ska

I love all music, but admit some genres draw the short straw when it's time for me to tune in. Reggae and ska are a couple of those styles I'd like to know more about. Who better to ask than the proficient artists in this Houston Press Music Awards category to help expand my playlists beyond Bob Marley and Streetlight Manifesto?

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Jesse’s been writing for the Houston Press since 2013. His work has appeared elsewhere, notably on the desk of the English teacher of his high school girlfriend, Tish. The teacher recognized Jesse’s writing and gave Tish a failing grade for the essay. Tish and Jesse celebrated their 33rd anniversary as a couple in October.
